Disclaimer – apparently, I was successful in creating a WebUI game for the 2017 IFComp. I must have purged all relevant knowledge from that experience the last couple of years, but I digress.
So my current WIP started well before 2017 and I recently converted it to be WebUI enabled. I got through the compile errors and am using best practice as described in the recent threads here. I still have to figure out how to redo the banner stuff, but one problem at a time. My issue is with the creation of the index.htm file that gets put into the web folder.
I know that it gets a lot of info from gameinfo.txt but there is some info that is appearing from my 2017 entry and I don’t know where it’s getting it from. I checked the build setting and the workbench setting, but everything points to my current WIP and not my 2017 entry.
Here are the steps in order:
Clean (Delete Derived Files)
Compile for Release
Build Web Page Package
Here is the info in gameinfo.txt:

and this is the resulting index.htm file in the web folder:
<html> <head> <title>Chaos</title> <link rel=stylesheet href="storyweb.css"> </head> <body> <h1>Chaos</h1><table width=100%><tr valign=top> <td> <p><table><tr valign=top><td class=coverart> <a href="edgesplash01.jpg"> <img width=175 height=175 src="edgesplash01.jpg" border=0> </a> <td> <b>by <a href="mailto:email@example.com"> Robb Sherwin</a> and <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org"> Mike Sousa</a></b><br> <br><span class=details> Released April 22, 2020<br> <br><a href="http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?ifid=c5acb91f-891d-33b5-ccf9-2810d279826d" ><b><i>Chaos</i> on IFDB</b></a> (Available after the 2017 IFComp)<br> <br><span class=notes> License: Freeware<br> IFID: c5acb91f-891d-33b5-ccf9-2810d279826d<br> </span></span></table> <p>Chaos <td> <td width=280 align=right> <table class=downloads width="100%"> <tr><td> <br><p><center><a href="http://gs.tads.io/?storyfile=http%3A%2F%2Fmike.tads.cz%2FFakeNews-WEB.t3"><h1>PLAY ONLINE</h1></a></center> <span class=notes><center>Version 1.0 -- 20201231</center></span> <br> <tr height=*> </table> </table> <br><br><br><br> <span class=notes> <i>Chaos</i> was created with <a href="http://www.tads.org">TADS</a> version 3. </body> </html>
So the “Available after the 2017 IFComp” text appears from somewhere as does the FakeNews-WEB.t3 reference and where it was hosted during the IFComp in 2017 that is stored in the Play Online button:
I know it’s probably something obvious, but geez this has me stumped. Where do I change that info?
